Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

IMPS serves all states of the US and some areas of Canada. The country has been divided up into groups of states, with a Regional Coordinator for each area. This group serves the South Carolina and North Carolina region.

About Our Rescue Group:

The Internet Miniature Pinscher Service, Inc. (IMPS)mission is to improve the lives of homeless and abandoned Miniature Pinschers through rescue and the love and respect that comes with humane care, compassion and kindness. IMPS was formed in July of 1998 with the rescue and adoption of Lister through the Miniature Pinscher e-mail group at saluki.org.

IMPS attempts to assist Miniature Pinschers in need by providing foster care, transport, adoptive homes, veterinary care, and other services and information for the well-being of Miniature Pinschers.

Come Meet our Pets:

We are internet-based, and do nearly all communication thru email, home visits, and one-on-one meet-and-greets between potential adopters and the dog they are interested in adopting.

Our Adoption Process:

All Miniature Pinschers placed through IMPS will be spayed or neutered prior to placement, have proof of appropriate vaccinations, and have been thoroughly evaluated by a breed representative for temperament and training needs.

All potential adopters complete an adoption application, and will undergo a vet reference check, personal reference check, and home screening. Discussion with the foster family is essential to finding the best match for both the dog and you. Always ask about habits, both good and bad.

IMPS requires reimbursement of all necessary veterinary costs. A small additional donation is requested with each adoption so that we may continue to care for chronically ill and/or severely injured foster dogs. Travel costs are borne by the adopter. In all cases, any expenses related to the adoption will be agreed upon prior to placement.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
